NPCA News – Response to the continuation of the LET GIRLS LEARN Initiative

Earlier this week, news reports cast the ongoing commitment into some doubt, especially in its current form. CNN, citing internal agency communications it obtained, reported that while work on these programs would continue, they would no longer be done under the “Let Girls Learn” (LGL) initiative launched two years ago by former First Lady Michelle Obama. Soon after these reports began circulating, the White House, State Department and USAID (another key partner in the initiative) indicated there would be no changes.  “There have been no changes to the #LetGirlsLearn program,” read a State Department tweet. “We are committed to empowering women and girls around the world.”  To read more, please follow the Link below:
